Common Uses for Plastic Injection Molding

Custom plastic injection molding is an ideal solution for many industries looking for high-quality parts. Since injection molding is the most versatile of all the techniques available, it has been chosen time and time again for many projects.

Industries that have benefited from custom plastic injection molding include:

Food & Beverage – The food and beverage industry requires that all parts comply with many specifications to ensure optimal safety for human health. Manufacturers choose the custom plastic injection molding process for components in conveyor systems, beverage units, processing equipment, beverage filters, and for food and beverage containers.

Medical & Pharmaceutical – Similar to the food and beverage industry, the medical and pharmaceutical device industry also needs to abide by a variety of guidelines. Additionally, medical products need to be fully traceable. Medical manufacturers enlist plastic injection molding specialists to create diagnostic test kits, surgical prep products, dental x-ray components, and other types of medical and pharmaceutical products.

Windows & Doors – Many door and window manufacturers have switched from metal to plastic injection molding for a variety of applications. This allows for significant cost reduction in their products and eliminates the appearance of rust and corrosion that happens with metal components. Plastic injection molding can be used to redesign parts that can reduce assembly time and costs, to create innovative highly reliably components that replace metal parts, and to create springs that will not corrode over time.
